Hello from Germany: Some days ago I got faced with the problem to restore a complete Oracle data directory. The files are located in a TI backup of about 33gb. Some of the data files of Oracle are really large (index and user files from 19gb to 31gb). Starting the restore I didn´t expect any problems. But - TI (my current version is TI Home 11) was unable to restore. It usually hangs after restoring about 4gb of the first of the >10gb files. I tried several attempts. Restoring with the TI restore function, restoring by using WindowsExplorer copy function with an opened TI backup, restoring by using the RescueDisc. Result was always the same. Hanging of restore. My last attempt was a download of a trial of TI Home 2009 and doing the upper procedures again. The current restore (better: restore attempt) was started two days ago by using a RescueDisc (of TI 2009). The progressbar currently shows about 25% of progress and tells me about 3 days (!!!) left to finish restore. I already had contacts with the Acronis support and they told me to try different methods to restore (the upper procedures). I suppose that a scenario like mine will not be the "normal" case for TI. But nevertheless a scenario like mine should be able to work. Or am I the only one who will try to backup (and restore) very big files (big does not mean that the backup-file itself is big but the files within the backup-file)? Does anybody of you already got faced with similiar problems? Thank you for any information and hints, regards, Ingolf. P.S.: I don´t want to restore the complete disc but only a directory.
